Kim Kardashian praises NZ's vow to amend gun laws

scandal 18/03/2019

Kim Kardashian led the praise for New Zealand's vow to change their gun laws less than 24 hours after the attacks that left 49 dead and 20 injured.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has promised the country's "gun laws will change". Attorney General David Parker echoed her thoughts and announced that New Zealand needs "to ban some semiautomatics, perhaps all of them."

Kim, who has been vocal about gun control since being robbed at gunpoint in Paris in 2016, applauded the country for taking immediate action.

Kim's sister Khloe added, "Yes sister! Yes!!!!!! Let's end this senseless violence." She added: "Now this is how you lead and protect."

Others shared Kim's stance too; actress Mia Farrow wrote, "The logical response- it was immediate." Sophia Bush also tweeted, "Just. Like. That."

In Australia, less than two weeks after the Port Arthur massacre in 1996, the National Agreement on Firearms all but banned automatic and semiautomatic assault rifles, mandated licensing and registration, and instituted a temporary gun buyback program that took nearly 650,000 assault weapons.
